Our mission is to assist children in reaching their full potential by helping the children obtain early intervention at the first signs of autism.
QuickStart raises awareness and initiates programs to cut wait-times, build capacity, and promote improvements in early identification and intervention. We believe there needs to be equitable services throughout Canada.
We are very pleased to welcome Craig Thompson as our new Service Coordinator for Specialized Behavioural Support Services and Family Services for the Ottawa and Cornwall regions as of September 1st, 2019.
We are looking forward to working with Craig and expanding our service areas in Eastern Ontario!
He can be reached at email@example.com or 613-363-3411.
In this post, we’ll discuss if medical cannabis is covered by provincial health insurance programs or private insurance.
